Father Of Shooting Victim Blames NRA And Politicians

Richard Martinez is the father of 20-year-old Christopher Martinez, victim of America's latest gun massacre. In a heartbreaking speech at a press conference, Martinez condemned the NRA and the corrupt politicians who are paid off to do their bidding. Watch:



MARTINEZ: Our son Chris Martinez and six others are dead. Our family has a message for every parent out there: You don’t think it will happen to your child until it does. Chris was a really great kid. Ask anyone who knew him. His death has left our family lost and broken. Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights. What about Chris’s right to live? When will this insanity stop? When will enough people say, “Stop this madness!” We don't have to live like this. Too many have died. We should say to ourselves, “Not one more!”
